New phone needed, urgently!
As sad as it sounds, I cant seem to function without my phone.
My S3 now randomly freezes on the alarm, texting, play store. I have factory reset, reimaged et al and it keeps doing it. Randomly and most often, frequently.
Anyway, I am in need of a phone tomorrow of equal or better spec than my S3. I would love to get a Nexus 5 but I cant wait 2-3 weeks.
Any recommendations? Or anyone selling anything I can use? (Must be android)

Can you not pick up a Nexus 5 from a phone shop?
If you are just popping your sim card into the phone it should just be the handset price. If its more expensive then on play store, haggle them down.
I did that for the Nexus 4.

I have had cyanogenmod since day one, unfortunately this is hardware I think.

You looked at the Motorola moto g? Seems like a good budget option.
BTW I take it the phone is no longer under warranty? Get 2 years with samsung usually

I'm looking at upgrades atm - used HTC Androids for a few years now, so would only consider the HTC One, or tempted to look at the HTC One Max monster...

I may do the same, had nothing but problems since the latest update. Does anyone know who or where I'd have to contact for a replacement??

iPhone.... you know it makes sense! (only cos no one has mentioned it)

I have had several iPhones before my S3, never again, unless they pull a blinder with something new.
